Youth Restore Democracy – Gothenburg Democracy Talks

Presenting the ideas of 24 young democracy innovators from 14 countries.

The International Youth Conference is the center of activities at the IYTT and the starting point of the proposal development process called the Bottom-Up Policy Advise Loop. During four hectic days, 24 conference participants, selected in competition from among 219 applications, are collaborating to bring forth visionary ideas on the strengthening and development of democracy. This event concludes the conference, giving the general public the opportunity to tap into the great minds of the leaders of tomorrow.

The presentation will be challenged by a distinguished panel of scholars and experts. Also, we hope that you, the audience, will bring your best questions and reflections and join us in an open discussion of the challenges and possibilities of the open society.

The event is part of the public lunch event series Gothenburg Democracy Talks, at the School of Business, Economics & Law, Vasagatan 1, Gothenburg, “SEB-salen”. If you are unable to attend in person you may join us online. Please register below.

The 30 first attendees at SEB-salen will be treated to a sandwich & soda!
